I have a Lexus Lx470 year 2000, with airbag light flashing.

Customer Question
I unbolted both front seats...
I have a Lexus Lx470 year 2000, with airbag light flashing. I unbolted both front seats and triple checked all of the connections under there. Next I bought a scan tool that gave me a trouble code of B0131. I used the scan tool's function to turn the light off. That did not work. I disconnected both battery terminals and restarted and that did not work. The light is still blinking. Not sure if a real problem or just a blinking light. The scan tool currently shows no faults. What next? thanks. Lloyd

Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

B0131 is the problem its indicating you have, and its a pretty simple fix.

You have attempted to reset and clear the light, but not fix the problem.

Do you have a voltmeter?
